Members of the Red Deer Firefighters will once again provide voluntary

Christmas tree pick-up service in Red Deer. Residents can place Christmas trees on their front lawn for pick up starting January 6.

“We rely strictly on the generous donations of Red Deerians to keep this annual campaign alive,” said Dan Henschel with IAFF Red Deer Local 1190. “Every year the number of people who purchase artificial trees increases, so we thank those who continue to participate in this program.”

Donations to the Red Deer Firefighters Children’s Charity can be made directly to the firefighter picking up your tree, or mailed in the pre-addressed envelope left in your mailbox.

Receipts are issued upon request. Donations to the Red Deer Firefighters Children’s Charity are used to support local children’s charities.

“On behalf of the Red Deer Firefighters and Local 1190, we thank all residents for their continued support,” said Henschel.
